The Yale Women Faculty Forum invites the Yale community to join us to view a new portrait of Yale’s first women PhDs, awarded in 1894. Celebrate this historic event for graduate coeducation. Yale’s decision to accept women would forever change academia and the course of women’s advancement. The first cohort of women graduates made an indelible mark on American culture as professors, writers, scientists, and activists. The Brooklyn based artist Brenda Zlamany has painted an inspiring portrait of these pioneers.
To learn more about the history of graduate coeducation and about the artist’s process of painting the portrait, join us in the Sterling Memorial Library Lecture Hall on April 5th from 3:30-4:30. Talks will be given by artist Brenda Zlamany and Yale Chief Archivist Judith Schiff.
At 4:45 we will gather for remarks by President Salovey and faculty followed by a reception in the Sterling Memorial Library Nave.
